Why cellular health is essential.

Cellular Function

Cellular function is directly related to cellular health. When cells are functionally optimal, a person is healthy; If cells are dysfunctional, disease creeps in with subtle symptoms such as general fatigue and weight gain. It may more acutely manifest itself with symptoms like infections or tumors. All the biochemical reactions that happen in our bodies occur inside cells. Proteins, neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones are made there. We derive nutrients and produce energy within the cell, so the metabolic processes necessary to sustain life are jeopardized if a cell is not functioning correctly.

Measuring Cellular Function

Cell function is measured by subjecting the cell to a stressor, altering its environment, and measuring its metabolic response. The correct term for this is “cellular response to mitogenic stimulation.” A T-lymphocyte cell (a white blood cell) is commonly used in finding cell function.

Micronutrients and Cell Function

Micronutrients, essential nutrients that are needed in small amounts, are as important for life as macronutrients. All the metabolic reactions inside the cells depend on micronutrients to do their part. If there is a vitamin, mineral, amino acids, fatty acids, or metabolites deficiency in the cell, the cell cannot do its job. A micronutrient deficiency distorts the metabolism in numerous and complicated ways, which may lead to DNA damage. DNA damage is one of the most critical factors that can compromise homeostasis resulting in chronic or degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and certain types of cancer. Therefore it is essential to have a safe level of micronutrients in our system to prevent damage and protect proper cell function.
